I know it sounds weird...
but only very few people know what i mean when i say it.

its a very intense shocking pain directly in the butt. They come randomly, often in the morning. but the pain is so bad you lose control of your body for a split second. it's awful. Shocked

anyone know what it is or have anything you wanna say about it at all... GO FOR IT.

Cool

no..
it really feels like... not spasms. maybe a really sharp knife instantly being shoved up there. its like usually only a 2 second lasting thing. but once you get one through the day you know you can expect atleast one more... err terrifying

I'm not sure if this is what you are experiencing:

I've heard of this pain happening to people and some women describe it as a contraction.

I've had something similar but in my leg. It feels like an electrical shock, only lasts for a second and then gone. I think that it has something to do with the medication I'm on, AdderallXR, or it could be a pinched nerve?

Honestly I don't know. It only happens about once a week and when I described it to my MD he said that it more than likely had to do with Adderall. I've always wondered if it had to do with a sports injury.....I have played tennis my whole life and in my junior year of college, 4 years ago, I had a really bad fall and had to have surgery. I predominately feel the shocks in that leg, but I have also felt them in my arm so it could be completely unrelated??? Confused

It sounds like a nerve problem, some medications can do weird things tot he body also.
Did your doctor try taking you off the medication for a while to see if your symptoms improve?

haha no it's worse than a charlie horse. the only pain i can relate it to is being stabed.. think of any time you ever poked yourself with a needle or got stung by a bee. then pretend that needle or stinger is the size of a hot dog. then shove it up there. that is exactly what it feels like. it's TERRIBLE! stretch OW

thanks miranda! but yeah people aren't supposed to get them everyday. According to the wikipedia definition of it which ^serenity^ pointed out to me, people who get them only get them about 6 times a year... on average. Smile THANK GOD!

Suffers from these Butt shocks too
So happy to hear others have the same problem. (would not wish these on anyone) I also get these awful shocks in my butt. Anyone I've told has no answers and usually smiles not knowing how bad they are. I also get them in the morning and sometimes afternoon, seems like I get them more when sitting or bending, not sure why? They come every few months. It's true that if you get one in the morning you know you'll most likely get another in the day and then not for another month or two. I was afraid it was something more seriouse so I'm so happy to have found you. Thanks all

i have a pain in my left butt cheek its not constant but it happens on a daily basis. It doesnt matter if im sitting, standing, or laying down. its a stabbing pain that can be so bad it can bring me to tears or just mild and annoying..i never know what to brace for. It feels as if the muscule is contracting over and over almost like a fist opening and closing. does anyone know what it is or have the same issue.

I get this shock as well too. I sometimes get it in the morning and when I get it, I get sort of paralyze for 2 seconds and I can't control my body and legs. Sometimes I just drop to my knees because it's so painful and wait till it goes away.

I've noticed this happens when right before I need to defecate. I feel like it's my body warning me that you need to take a dump soon and it's going to be a big and painful one. I usually have to release my feces anywhere between 10 minutes to 45 minutes after this shock.
